    Printer says to open cover, ink empty (on all three colors) except the black. We are using Brother products straight from the original shipping container. After unplugging the unit, removing all the carts, waiting 30 minutes, replugging, inserting the new carts, we continue to get the same read out and the machine is not functioning. Yes, I feel like throwing it in the garbage, but I've spent (wasted) so much on carts that I'm trying to be patient. HELP!!!

@robgat:
Did you use generic carts? Those do make a lot of trouble. Use another cart.
Make sure the cart is placed well and secured (white plastic nose).

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning procedures. leave maintenance mode by pressing 9 then 9. do run a test print.
If you still cant see any bk the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore due to wrong ink consistence of the generic ones.


@Meloman:

If you use original carts make sure you have placed the carts well and they are secured! Give answer to display info!
If you still receive the error in question, have a look at the right hand side of the cart holder. Here you will see the led control board which might be out of position and needs replacing. Open printer and reinsert the small board.

My epson stylus cx6000 has stopped printing black. I've cleaned the print head, changed the cartridge and it still won't print black. What else can I do?


Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.

My printer will not print black even tried 2 brand new cartrages. i also tried the cleaning process on the printer and it did not help. all other colors print perfect.


the black tube or nozzles are clogged up. The printhead probably needs to be replaced.

possible reasons for this

generic ink
not using the printer for a long time
printing past the warning indicator of low ink and having air get sucked in the tubes.

Probably cheaper to buy a new unit.

Black ink in brother 240c printer does not print new cartridge


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there. Better than throwing the printer.

Good Luck

Help! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ I have learned from experience, that Epson2.gif does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;

Hp psc1210 will not print black but will print gray


Gray print does not use black ink. It only uses the color cartridge. I assume you already changed the black cartridge. Make sure it is the right one for your printer and it is not a generic refill. The generic might be OK but I wouldn"t trust it complety. Make sure your cartridge is properly seated in the holder.

Blk won't print


Do you use generic carts? It could be that the generic ink has clogged the filter in side the printhead.
Do run the machine with original ink carts and try the following:
Press menu then start mono then four times arrow-up. machine will be in maintanance mode. press 7 then 6 then 3. Press start mono. Machine will do a power purge. Press 0 then 9 machine prints test sheet. You might do the power purge a 2nd time. Leave the maintanance mode by pressing 9 then 9.
If you do not have more black blocks the printhead is clogged and cant be fixed anymore!
